    Do you suppose it is because they are more intelligent or because they make higher salaries which are usually taxed less by republican governments? I would wager it's the latter.

    What you are listening to are programs made since the Republicans gained majority in the House and NPR is scared to death that all federal funding will be cut off because of there previous leftest biased programs.

    Now they are desperately trying to sound "neutral" to save their own skin and that of all public funded media (TV) thanks to NPR's biased programs and budget problems. This is a no brainer. Thank you, thank you very much

    And the first one is a study on IQ.
    Well Obama won the majority vote and the electoral vote. Now the highest percentage of Republicans who voted based on education and the lowest for Democrats was those with a college degree.

    Conversely the highest Democratic majority and the lowest Republican percent vote was those with no high school diploma.

    Sorry Glenn I wasn't asking if you attended college it was a part of the data of the 2008 election. You are twisting the data.

    VOTE BY EDUCATION
    Post graduate 58%-40% for Obama.
    College graduate 50-48 for Obama.
    Some college 51-47 for Obama

    So basically it says the more education you had the more likely you were to vote for Obama.

    I hope the republicans do cut off what little indirect funding they provide. All that will happen is they will lose some stations in rural parts of America, which are more conservative anyway, big deal. The liberals in those areas are smart enough to get npr through other sources.

    Our perhaps it's the more brainwashing you get in higher education.

    That's the spirt. Of course less educated people cannot be "brainwashed."

    Actually no... I suspect it is because most of them are business folks... and as such do not enjoy government (by the power of law) taking their $$$ (taxation), and using it to buy the votes (entitlement programs) of folks that are too lazy to get the education and work hard to get ahead.

    Wow talking about twisting the results. Obama won the election what I said is true for Republican voters the highest percentage were college grads and lowest were no HS education . Now Obama won all the education categories but he had his highest approval with those of little or no education.

    With the majority against him now the ratio would still be the same except I'm sure the Republicans now would now have overwhelming majorities in college grads and probably still lose in no or little no education group. I sure hope you get the point now. Thank you very much

    Glenn I posted the results of college educated people. It is as I stated. Also cited was a peer reviewed study showing that liberals have a higher average IQ than conservatives.

    VOTE BY EDUCATION
    Post graduate 58%-40% for Obama.
    College graduate 50-48 for Obama.
    Some college 51-47 for Obama

    Similarly, young adults who called themselves "very liberal" had an average IQ of 106 during adolescence, while those who identified themselves as "very conservative" had average IQs of 95.
